Insurance Banana Skins 2011

The CSFI survey of the risks facing insurers
PwC has joined forces with the Centre for the Study of Financial Innovation (CSFI) to explore what risks insurers face and how they prioritise them. The research questions insurers on three areas: current risks, future trends, and their preparedness to respond to the risk environment.

  1. Regulation is top of the list
  2. Only 5% respondents feel the industry is well prepared to face the risks identified
  3. Capital and Investment performance are still high on the agenda
  4. Talent, a new entrant, but straight in at number 6
Top risks:
  1. Regulation 
  2. Capital 
  3. Macro-economic trends
  4. Investment performance 
  5. Natural catastrophes
